How To Join
To become a participating member, simply click the "Join this group" button! THE LIBERATION OF DEVIANTART HAS BEGUN.Submissions
All submissions will be reviewed by the Guild Masters. If for some reason your submission is not accepted, it just means that the particular deviation is not a good fit for us. If you have any questions about why a submission was declined, you will likely find the answer below. If you don't, please feel free to ask! If you do have any further questions about why your piece was declined please feel free to send us a note or comment directly on the submission process to keep things more private. We will try to be as fair as possible with our explanation but be ready for a critique. Thanks for your consideration in advance!
Guild members can submit the following types of works:
a) your own works to the appropriate Members Gallery folder.
b) contest entries to the current contest gallery folder.
c) other deviants (non-members) works to the guild favorites.
guild favorites will always be accepted
To submit art or writing, please use either the 'contribute art' link in the blue banner on our profile page for your own works or 'suggest to favorites' for non-members works.
Members can upload a maximum of 2 deviations a week. OC characters are only allowed if they are not the main focus of the work (i.e. they are in the background). At least one canon AC character must be the clear focus whether the work is written or visual art. We cannot post works written from the perspective of an OC.
Photomanipulations and wallpapers are only allowed if there is a significant
personal contribution by the artist and proper credits are given for any resources used which the artist did not create. Game screenshots, motivationals, lightly edited or unedited game art will not be added to the guild gallery. For info on DA's policy regarding wallpapers and why we have to decline most of them please see this article: [link]
The guild does not tolerate art theft. If you did not make it and/or don't have permission to use it, do not submit it. If you try to submit a deviation which is not your own work you will be banned from the group. If you suspect a piece in the gallery of being stolen art please note us and we will investigate.Reasons submissions are declined:
Deviations that would be better suited for members' personal galleries or other clubs include:
tutorials, essays and other non-fiction works
works in progress/unfinished art/works on notebook paper
photos of figurines
artwork or writings that don't feature a canon AC universe character (i.e., OCs)
anything graphic not censored with proper consideration of the DA maturity filters
Recolors of original artwork already in our gallery
make sure that any traditional art is well photographed
Submissions will be judged based on: success of the piece how well the artist achieved what we think they were trying to achievecleanness cleanness of lines, erasing construction draft lines,improvement and effort (comparatively with other pieces in your gallery) if your piece is on the border, we will browse your gallery to compare improvement and effortunderstanding of light, color, composition and line using all of your artistic freedom to utilize line weight, light source, limited pallet, texture, cropping, etc.
Please note that the Guild Masters have the right to decline any submissions due to mature subject matter and this will be in accordance to deviantArt rules and regulations or was accidentally accepted. You can learn more from the following article "What is Mature Content?"
Any mature rated submissions to the gallery will be clearly marked as “mature.” Submissions of any works containing pornographic material
and/or hateful imagery
will not be tolerated and subject to permanent banishment from the guild. Also please note that that the guild does NOT
wish to affiliate ourselves with any members and/or affiliates who support hateful material or any relation of the sort.
